Ingredients

Chia Pudding

  • 3 tbsp PRANA organic whole black Proactivchia seeds
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Caramelized Apples and Nuts

  • 1 tbsp PRANA organic coconut oil
  • 3 cooking apples (Cortland, McIntosh, Spartan, Lobo or other)
  • ¼ cup PRANA organic raw European pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup PRANA organic raw pecans, chopped
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
Preparation

Chia Pudding

  1. Mix the ProactivChia, almond milk and maple syrup in a Mason jar. Close the jar and shake well. 
  2. Let the chia seeds swell for at least 30 minutes, shaking occasionally. The pudding can also be prepared the night before. 

Caramelized Apples and Nuts

  1. Peel and core the apples. Cut into small cubes. 
  2. In a skillet, melt the coconut oil. Add the apples, pumpkin seeds, pecans and maple syrup. Cook over medium-high heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until apples are golden brown and lightly caramelized, and the nuts are browned but still crunchy. 
  3. In a glass, small Mason jar or bowl, prepare the parfait by alternating layers of chia pudding with layers of caramelized apple and nut mixture. Finish with an apple-nut layer.
